Most wide format printers would prefer artwork at a smaller scale. Perhaps check what scale your printer would like, otherwise 25% or 50% is common. Be sure to consider the scalability of your artwork though——i.e. vector graphics will have no problem scaling up, but photos or logos in pixels will. So I suggest if you make your banner 50% scale, make sure your images are twice the resolution they need to be.
